The Is­tan­bul Jew­elry Show, which was held from March 20-23, once again pro­vided an ideal plat­form for in­ter­na­tional buy­ers and sell­ers to net­work and con­duct busi­ness. The 38th edi­tion of the show or­gan­ised by UBM Rotaforte brought to­gether man­u­fac­tur­ers, whole­salers, re­tail­ers, and in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als with a big­ger se­lec­tion of prod­ucts.

Held at the Is­tan­bul Fair Cen­ter, the sec­tions in­cluded fine gold and pearl jew­ellery, sil­ver jew­ellery, di­a­mond & pre­cious stone jew­ellery, loose di­a­monds, pre­cious and semi-pre­cious stones, pearls, watches, jew­ellery dis­play & pack­ag­ing ma­te­ri­als, gem­mo­log­i­cal labs, trans­porta­tion, soft­ware, safes, ma­chin­ery, jew­ellery tools and equip­ment.

Some 1,200 ex­hibitors from 25 coun­tries in­clud­ing Turkey, Bel­gium, China, Ger­many, Greece, Hong Kong, In­dia, In­done­sia, Italy, Ja­pan, Malaysia, South Korea, United Arab Emi­rates, U.S. A. and Thai­land par­tic­i­pated in the trade show that was spread over six halls to­talling 60,000 sq m. The show drew in 26,974 top buy­ers and in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als, of which 73% were lo­cals while 27% were from 111 coun­tries.

“We are to­tally sat­is­fied with the Is­tan­bul Jew­elry Show held in March 2014. We re­ceived good busi­ness, es­pe­cially from Le­banon , Is­rael and Azer­bai­jan,” com­mented Ab­dul­lah Sanlı, Sade-Is, Turkey.

An­other ex­hibitor, He­lena Taş, Ce­taş, Turkey, in­formed, “Our com­pany has been par­tic­i­pat­ing in the March and Oc­to­ber ex­hi­bi­tions since a very long time. The March 2014 edi­tion has been a suc­cess­ful one. We de­vel­oped new busi­ness con­tacts dur­ing the fair and had or­ders mainly from Iran, Iraq and North Africa buy­ers.”

First-time ex­hibitor Vishal Me­hta of H. Di­pak, Bel­gium was also happy with the show. “Al­though this is our first time at the show, we re­ceived very good re­sults. We made new con­tacts mostly from Turkey, Iran and Rus­sia.”

The show recorded an up­trend in ex­hibitor num­bers, ex­hi­bi­tion space and num­ber of vis­i­tors at the show, which con­firmed both the fair’s in­ter­na­tional im­por­tance and also high­lights Is­tan­bul’s sta­tus in the global jew­ellery trade.

“The show was ex­cel­lent for our com­pany. Our de­signs and prod­uct groups caught the at­ten­tion of Dubai as well as other Ara­bic coun­tries’ buyer del­e­ga­tions. We did good busi­ness,” said Yıl­maz Tapar of Tapar Kuyum­cu­luk, Turkey.

Most of the buy­ers were from Turkey, Rus­sian Fed­er­a­tion, Iran, Greece, Iraq, In­dia, UAE, Le­banon, Al­ge­ria, Morocco, Is­rael, Tu­nisia, Egypt, Italy, Ger­many, Saudi Ara­bia, Mace­do­nia, Ukranie, Bul­garia and Syria.

“The fair is very good. It is nice to see new de­signs and new com­pa­nies at the show. We have al­ready placed or­ders with Ar­paş, Koçak and Roberto Bravo,” com­mented Savic Dra­gan - ZLatara Ru­bin, Bos­nia.
